Garonga's holistic philosophy is to offer a safari for the soul, an unhurried and intimate wildlife encounter, a time to reflect and find inspiration in nature. You can either try your hand at every activity we have on offer, or you can do simply nothing at all, lazing in the hammock with a good book while watching the grazing impala. Activities include game drives, wilderness walks, sleep-outs, outdoor bush-baths and aromatherapy and reflexology sessions. We encourage our guests to indulge in activities that will allow them to walk close to the animals, and thereby enhance their wildlife encounter. Take time out for yourself - take a bath in the bush Take some time for yourself and breathe in the fresh air of the bushveld - revitalise your mind, body and soul. You may sleep out on your own on a beautiful deck with stunning views overlooking the veldt. A mouth-watering picnic hamper, a drinks box, and hot drinks are left for you at the deck. You are left with a radio and will get collected in the morning. A wash basin and toilet close by are provided. It is a 20 minute drive from the main camp. A truly magical experience!
